    Pros

    Best side of retail. Great pay. They pay commission on each sale and you have the opportunity to grow that percentage starting at 2%. I met the CEO and he is really great guy who is genuinely concerned with the growth and development of he company.

    Takes time to learn, but once learned is really simple.

    Amazing company! Innovative and entrepreneurial with a huge focus on the Associates. Visionworks truly "gets it" - focusing on the employee who will in turn focus on customer. There is a huge push to make sure there is direct and transparent communication throughout the entire organization that ultimately supports the company's culture.

    Cons

    It is a face paced environment - which might not be for everyone.

    Keep doing what you are doing. You are headed in the right direction!
